  • Like those who disavow climate change, there are still a number of stubborn business and IT leaders who deny that digital technologies have transformed the business landscape. The belief is that this is yet another over-hyped IT fad that will soon blow over. This thinking has surfaced often in the past, namely with technologies, such as the Internet and the cloud. But this one isn't going away, either. Digital disruption has changed how we live and communicate, and those factors have moved the faces of business onto smartphone and PC screens. The old rules no longer apply, and that's a tough reality to face. Digital disruption is now part of our daily existence. It's time, and highly appropriate, for businesses of all sizes to face this new dynamic and begin to plan for a more integrated, technical future. In this eWEEK slide show, we use frontline industry information from Bedford, Mass.-based Progress Software, which came up with 12 actionable principles an organization must consider as it plans for digital transformation.

After the vote, the pound fell to its lowest level since 1985 and David Cameron resigned as prime minister. The impact of this exit vote will have international consequences for everything from banking and employment to privacy and data management. While it's too early to predict exactly how the Brexit vote will affect the global economy and international business practices, it's important for organizations in every country to think ahead. While it will be business as usual until more information is known, it may be best to start planning about how to best communicate with customers, partners and investors. Also, evaluate your company as well as competitors in your industry as to how regulatory changes will be addressed. How will your company adapt to changes related to corporate taxes and HR laws? Consider Brexit's impact on your workforce, data privacy and data management. After speaking with the executive team at SugarCRM regarding Brexit, eWEEK came up with five items today's businesses should think about based on the company's observations.
